Patented Base Track

The base track of these timber sliding doors can be designed to be flush inside to outside, as with most of our sliding door systems. The Carminati Lift and Slide door, however, has a unique sliding track cover, that covers each sliding track within the floor when the doors are open. This patented detail creates a truly flush internal to external base detail with no track indents

Timber, as a naturally insulating material, creates extremely high levels of thermal insulation from both the double and triple glazed systems with Uf values as little as 1.2 W/m2K.

Available configurations are broad and are able to create large elevations of sliding glass with minimal timber framing.

Wood Finishes

The beautiful timber profiles of the Carminati system are available in either Oak or Pine. The wood framing is then able to be finished in a wide range of stains to create the design and appearance required from the timber framing.

All timber frame finishes are available to view at the IQ Glass showroom in Amersham so contact us to make you appointment.

These thin timber frames elegantly dissect the large glass elevation, merging the modern architecture desire for minimal sightlines with our craving for warm natural framing. Thanks to the natural insulation of timber the system has a naturally high level of thermal insulation with triple glazing available to improve that further.

This timber framed sliding door is truly unique, offering a new dimension to our minimal framing product selection.
